Book Image Not Available
Overview
Occupational tomfoolery, hilarity & technology collide when two snarky co-workers, Nia and Harper, bond over the hatred of their oh-so-DREADFUL workplace. They've simply had it! Two successful professionals at different stages in their careers and from opposite sides of the track, they form an unspoken sorority which serves as the foundation to coping with higher-ups and colleagues in their zany workplace, Taking Chances! Nia and Harper's friendship deepens when they discover that chatting with each other throughout the day via instant messenger makes their 9-to-5 more tolerable: no topics (or co-workers) are off limits. Having self-elevated to become the office's Cool Girls, encounters with their lewd and lascivious boss, Milton, and an office brimming with brown-nosers are fodder for their virtual exchanges. Positioned as an anecdotal tale, Instantly! unveils whether dismay, ennui and entrapment in their cubicles are manufactured by Nia and Harper or do the duo really have the chutzpah to explore pursuits beyond Taking Chances!? Is the career path truly greener on the other side?
